The report claims that the shipments for the leading five companies reached over 17 million units in October. This is mainly attributed to the consumer markets in the United States and Europe entering the peak season and increased demand for these devices because of the COVID-19 pandemic as more and more people are working from home.
Thanks to the strong demand for both — consumer and education models in laptops, HP retained its leadership position in the market for the month of October. However, Dell managed to unseat Lenovo for the second position, thanks to its growth in the Chromebook shipments because of the US education market.
Lenovo‘s shipments slipped in the month of October as the company fulfilled its education-use Chromebook orders from Japan. Also, the demand for notebooks in the company’s home market China was weaker than that in the US and Europe last month.
Further, the report goes on to add that Taiwan’s top three notebooks ODMs witnessed growth in the combined shipments by 13 percent. Among them, Compal Electronics posted the highest monthly shipment growth of over 30 percent, thanks to the significant increase in orders from Dell
